Of course…not everything goes as you plan.
I’m still sitting in Alaska.
2 days before flying up here, I lost my wallet. Fortunately, I still had my passport. So, I was able to fly out. I immediately ordered a new one.
However, due to the remote location of the locale, it took a little longer than expected to get here. Not to mention that Fedex does not deliver here.
So, my debit card should be here late afternoon, and then I will be heading to Fairbanks to see friends, and to watch the UFC fights on Saturday evening.
I’ve seen lots of people the few days I’ve been here though. I also got a chance to catch up with Leland and Donetta (the couple that kept my car and things for me), and Leroy and Karen (an elderly couple who adopted me during my second year here in Alaska).
One benefit of being here is being away from the craziness of the city for a while, and being in the company of such sweet people.
I actually just put a homemade Rhubarb crumble in the oven, made with fresh Rhubarb from the garden. Next we’re going to make pesto with basil fresh out the garden as well. Don’t get to do that much in the city.
As amazing as some of the people up here are, I’m really looking forward to making my way back.
I’m also hoping to stop and train jiu jitsu on my way back to civilization. So I spent some time yesterday researching schools along my way. Looking forward to hopefully getting to do that.
So how was everyone’s 4th? Any good stories? Let me know what’s up?
